I've installed DD-WRT several times in the past and never had an issue but today I installed it on a Linksys WRT32X. I put in the static IP information and as soon as I did the wired connection to 3 different computers worked perfectly.
However WIFI devices would not connect. They see the Network, they see its secure (I tried many different security types), but when any device tries to initiate a WIFI connection it says it cannot. Tried from 3 different computers and 3 different phones (and one printer).
I attached the Settings for WIFI on the DD-WRT, do you guys see anything wrong?

Thanks for moving it!
I tried everything you noted but I'm still not able to connect
how do I return to the original Linksys Firmware?
DD-WRT works extremely well on the WRT32X, period!
You never said what DD-WRT version you are running. I suggest r40009 which is a solid build.
1. Do not use AUTO for channel selection
2. Do not include spaces in SSID
3. Use WPA2 Personal (AES)... but not TKIP
4. Try Mixed AC/N
I would not advise attempting to go back to stock on this router, unless you kept the original stock partition. It is possible, but fraught with danger for the novice. Read the sticky. _________________ Linksys WRT32X v1 - r41218
